Kids Camps

Looking for something fun and exciting for your kids to do during the summer, winter, and spring breaks? Look no further! Consider a uniquely rewarding experience for your children with the Portland Rock Gym Kids Camps! Rock climbing has been shown to help build confidence, improve focus, and increase coordination and strength in children. And, there is no doubt that it is exceptionally fun!

Our camps are normally for kids 8 to 15 years of age and will include games, technique instruction, and of course, a lot of climbing! Campers will participate in other activities throughout the week of camp. These activities include our slack-line, rope-swing, huge cargo net, and other high rope elements. Spots are limited, so register on-line today! During the summer, kids age 10 and up will head outside to climb around the greater Portland area for 1 day per week!

Advanced Teen Summer Program

This program, for belay certified teens ages 12-17, is designed to teach and expand upon skills already learned in our youth programs and will therefore better prepare climbers for the outdoor experience. This class will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with one day outside and one day inside. 

Tuesday will be outdoors for six hours at Broughton Bluff. Parents will drop off and pick up at the climbing destination. 

Thursday will be indoors at Portland Rock Gym for two hours and will focus on specific skills that will translate to the Thursday outdoor sessions.

This program will be available a la carte and will run for two weeks each, with four classes per two week sessions. We encourage everyone to sign up for at least three 2 week sessions in order to see significant improvement.

Please contact us via email or phone to sign up today!

Camp Schedule

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policies

Refunding or rescheduling a camp is allowed without fee, up until a month in advance of the start of the camp. Due to the nature of camp, rescheduling within 15-28 days of the start of camp incurs a 25% fee, rescheduling within 14 days of the start of camp incurs a 50% fee.

Cancellations without rescheduling made within 15-28 days before the start of camp result in a 75% return in the form of store credit for services, those made within 14 days of the start of camp will result in a 50% return in the form of store credit for services. The remaining amount is forfeited.

If a parent is able to replace their child with a friend's child, we are happy to allow that. However, we do not process a refund in this case, it is up to the families to handle the financial aspect of such an arrangement. Due to the popularity of our camps, we often have a wait-list, so if you cannot maintain your reservation, please notify us so we can offer your spot to another camper.


No-shows forfeit the entire price of the class or event. We cannot offer refunds on a camper’s single day of camp.
